Do your dreams scare you?
As a child I had a pretty big imagination. I was a huge Disney fan and I really believed in fairytales.
“A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you are fast asleep. In dreams you will lose your heart aches, whatever you wish for, you keep. Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling thru. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing the dream that you wish will come true” -Cinderella
“When you wish upon a star makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires, will come to you” -Disney’s Pinocchio
These songs make it sound so simple, just make a wish and it will come true, but we all know that is not real life. It is not enough to dream but we have to put in the work to make our dreams come true.
Not to mention real life comes with complications, things that will try to detour us from achieving our dreams. Things that will make you want to give up all together.
Or maybe you feel you are not good enough or qualified enough to have what you desire. You feel your dream is so far from where you are right now that you couldnt possibly attain it.
That’s when its okay to go back to that childlike mindset. You know when you truly believed. Then you can tell yourself anything is possible. You just have to be willing to step out on faith. There is no time limit in accomplishing your dreams. The only person who will get in your way is you.
I know its hard because in my short adult life I have become more of a realist. I was ready to settle for just mediocre days. I was getting complacent with the way things were. Then I stumbled on this quote “If your dream doesn’t scare you, it’s too small. That’s when I realized I was limiting myself from having all I truly deserved.
So what if it doesn’t work out or if I make a few mistakes, at least I tried it right. I have to tell myself it is okay if you are unsure about the unknown. It’s okay to even be afraid. Just do it!
Do you really want to wake up one day and see how life has passed you by and you never had the courage to DO! Its not enough just to dream. Have faith in your dreams and trust God for guidance.
I encourage you to write your dreams down, you may not be able to share them with anyone cause they may not understand. Start that vision board, take a class, start the business, write the book, etc. Whatever God had laid on your heart lets try to make our dreams a reality and be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire!
